I have the 6500slide, it has good features, nice camera, video, messaging and music speaker. the problem comes in when random misfunctions cause me to worry, once it did not recognise my security code after repeatedly entering it only by the 15 try the keypad unlocked, it also freezes for short periods.
but i like the phone, get it because its stylish and sleek.
I've brought this phone on Nov 07, and since than I regretted everyday. Whenever I talked morethan 3 minutes it restarts autometically. Sometime the keypad does not work. While using the camera storage option autometically changed from memory card to phone.
Please help me by providing information about the sound quality of this phone in head phone and speaker. and is this phone has louder sound? Also, can we see pdf files in this phone?
Sound Quality in headset and speaker phone is how in this phone. and in term of sound which is better 6500 slide or N82. thanks
pynx_07, 11 Sep 2008I bought this fon 2weeks ago and i've noticed that its batt life is very poor it is indicated ... moreI have had the same problem as you and my handset which I purchased two months back came with an older OS version 6.2. It used to freeze on me quite often and then none of the buttons would respond for quite some time. I have upgraded the OS to the current version 8.3 but that has not vastly improved the situation - though it has become less prone to freezing, marginally!! If you do want to upgrade, first take a backup of all the data that you have on the phone memory as upgrading the OS will erase everything from your phone memory!! If you have data in your memory card - you dont have to worry about that as its not going to get affected by the upgrade. Install the Nokia PC Suite from the CD that came with your handset, connect the phone with your PC throught the supplied USB cable and the Nokia software will guide you through the backup process. Once you have backed up the phone memory data, connect your PC to the internet and click on the Update Phone Software icon. The Nokia PC Suite will determine your current OS version and search out the latest OS version available and after you confirm the upgrade will automatically download the latest version and install it on your handset. Once the upgrade is complete you need to reinstate your saved data from your phone memory and then its all done!!
Ela, 07 Feb 2008Hi, not sure if anyone else has encountered the same problem if so, please help! I've had the ... morea 'bug' with slide is it will not remember ringtone or other options which are not integral to phone. Try moving ringtone file to the normal gallery folder and it may remember a bit more easily.
If ringtone file is on the memory card instead, it always defaults away...
Great phone and good features. Had some starting up problems though, wouldn't operate properly, appeared to be caused by my belt holder with magnets in the flap. I read some similar problems on this forum, so : keep the phone away from magnets once you've re-installed factory setting because that's the solution. Cheers
I bought this phone on February the 8th. And i think this phone is sort of perfect : the designe is perfect, the performance is great and the features are very good. So I advice people to buy it.
I have had this phone for over 8 months now and never had any problems with it at all. It has very very good battery life, and i use it a lot. The camera on it is quite good, and its a good mp3 player. I dropped the phone a few times and it never scratched. Overall very good phone, i would recommend this phone to anyone that wants a solid, good locking phone.
it is really a great handy phone,with long life even while rough use.this phone is not going to be old due to its steel i.e scratch resistant body.moreover the picture quality is great.
dont sook about the phone... u should researched it more before u went into a 2 year contract with optus... some people are just plain stupid for going in to contracts these days...
It even didn't start properly. I was not able to use my phone at all, received it today! the screen flickers; every touch of any button makes this phone stressed.
Isn't there any quality control?
This is without a doubt the worst phone I have ever had the misfortune of owning.
I purchased one 10 months ago, and the problems started immediately. The keypad and scroll/menu keys wouldn't work/ respond properly. I returned it immediately, but Nokia doesn't replace faulty phones with new ones. They make you go through a process, where you must return the phone for repairs three times, and then they give you a "new one"... Only it isn't a new one...it's just new insides for your old one. So if the problem is with the way the outsides interact with the new ones, you're screwed and have to go through the process all over again.
It's been an unending drama. Stay away from this phone...and maybe try a different brand.
I think this is the best phone in the market at the moment. easy to use and the best ever
This phone is awesome. Its simple, has everything you need and its small. Just a fantastic phone. No problems in mine... I highly recommend it.
